Team-Up Thursday: Walk

I'm finally participating in my first Team-Up Thursday after Megan paired me up with Jody out in Iowa. It's been fun getting to know her a little and I look forward to all of our posts together.

I had a hard time with this week's suggested "walk" theme. I originally intended of thinking of a new theme until I got an email from Jody, telling me that her little girl just started walking. How perfect of a theme is that for capturing those little baby feet! You can't deny capturing moments like that.

Anyway, I ventured out into the streets of downtown Philadelphia after work, trying to capture some feet/legs in motion. For some reason I pictured the Beatles walking across Abbey Road when I thought of this theme. I tried to snap several shots of people walking across the crosswalk, but either their strides were off, there were annoying background distractions or...this sounds so silly...they had unappealing shoes. Haha! So, although I didn't get my Abbey Road shot, I managed to take an angled shot of some lady in mid-stride with some cool boots! Jody's picture is just precious and I thought it was neat how both of our pictures were "walking" in the same direction. They paired together well!



Check out Megan and Melody to see more Theme Thursday shots.

LOL at your ugly shoe comment :). it looks like these are an age-progressed pair: one of the baby and then years later as she walks down the street -- what a happy coincidence!

Well, I think you two created your own Abbey Road with those two shots together! Way cool.

I don't think you could have planned the shots better. Looks like they are walking together. Love it.

To have them walking in the same direction is great. I dont think I could have just gone out into the strees and started snapping people. Bravo for you! The sweet little first steps of a child is something we all love to capture. Great dip!

Great shot of the boots - and I love your story of getting it. And this pair is perfect together.

Those boots were made for walking! ;) I love that you went with the theme and then had the courage to shoot strangers. I never would have even thought of that!
